A lawsuit and best wishes

As per usual we'll be talking about these two stories more in depth tomorrow but -

It's being picked up in such 'mainstream' media as TMZ that the Big Show, aka Paul Wight, is being sued by SoBe Entertainment. During his time away from the WWE approx. 2 years ago, Show was supposedly training to become a boxer; SoBe offered him a big $$$ contract plus some front money for a new home. Lo and behold come Wrestlemania time that year, Show was not only back with the WWE, but wrestling a boxer in Floyd Mayweather on the show, which grossed $31,000,000.

Here's hoping for Show's sake that he did dot all his 'i's and cross his 't's because this is the type of contractual backout that could hit him in the pocketbook.

Meanwhile I also wanted to send out In This Very Ring's best wishes to Gerald Brisco, who, according to the Cauliflour Alley Club website, recently suffered a stroke and is soon to undergo surgery. A highly successful wrestler along with his brother Jack, and one of Vince McMahon's right-hand cronies, Brisco has been a mover and shaker in the industry for decades. If this story is true (WWE has yet to confirm it but there's no reason for the Cauliflour Alley to lie about such a thing) we wish him a speedy recovery and good health.

We will talk about these two stories and much more tomorrow night, right here, In This Very Ring. Be sure and tune in. Cheers!
